Chris Christie Signs Bill to Ease Restrictions on Breweries

chris christieFinally, Chris Christie has done something that everyone can agree with. Today he signed S-641/A-1277, a bill that will ease restrictions on microbreweries in the state.

Craft beer has grown tremendously in New Jersey, and it’s great to see government on the state level get a bipartisan bill passed that will have a positive effect on the industry. This bill will lead to increased production from existing breweries, which in turn will hopefully lead to more jobs and more tourist dollars.

The main components of the law really benefit brewpubs the most, as they are now allowed to increase production, distribute their product outside of the brewpub itself, and open up more locations. Both brewpubs and microbreweries will now have an easier time offering samples on and off site, and microbreweries will be able to sell more beer straight from the brewery for offsite drinking.

Some New England juice picked up from the source at @proclamationale. Pit stop on the road to Newport for some Ghandi Bot and Fuzzy. I really enjoy this label on Mikkeller's Windy Hill cans. @eaglerockbrew was an add-on in my very first trade years ago, so they've got a special place in my beer memory. Had to bring some back with me when I found it at @bottlecraft while on vacation in San Diego.
